London Assembly Tuberculosis (TB) in London Survey

Survey of London adults on behalf of London Assembly about perceptions of tuberculosis in London.

This survey, commissioned by the London Assembly Health Committee, found that one in five Londoners (18%) said that they don’t know what the symptoms of TB are, when presented with a list.

  • Over half of respondents (56%) thought TB was transmitted through spitting – untrue, yet widely believed;
  • Astonishingly, 17 per cent of survey respondents thought that TB can be transmitted through unprotected sex;
  • More than two in five (43%) agreed that they would be worried if they had to to tell their employer they had TB.
